“Building” Relationship

A sight from a distance -- he’s attractive;
Plans in my mind are made.
Eye contact and a friendly chat;
The foundation has been laid.

We walk, we talk about where we grew up;
Framework is starting to form.
We insulate with talk of family;
HIs smile is friendly and warm.

Secrets revealed and like a roof o’erhead,
I feel protected when he is near.
The walls are up, but doors open wide;
I let him in without any fear.

Carpet is laid and painted walls;
I want to look good for him every day.
Furniture posed, we settle down,
In this home forever we’ll stay.

  1. Oh, I love this so much. Relationships are so much like a house, and once built on a solid foundation, we can feel safe inside. I love how you keep the “doors open wide.” 🙂 Beautiful work.


      1. Oh, that’s awesome! It’s a great-looking website, very professional. I’m a lead writer for a company called Iko Brands. I write mainly for a website called calmingdog.com and I’ll be doing some product reviews and videos for cat products in the near future. Thanks for asking and nice to (virtually) meet you. 😀 Where are you from?
